Server Side Includes (SSI) is a popular server-side scripting language, which is often used to include the content of one file inside a second file. It's used primarily with online content and it could help to make a static HTML site much more dynamic. If you wish to have a daily quote shown on a number of web pages of your website, as an example, you can make a text file and switch the quote in it each day. All the webpages in which this file is included will display the modified quote, so you will not have to alter them by hand every time. SSI can also be used to include the output of simple functions as opposed to a static file - for instance, the client's IP address, a hit counter or perhaps the current date and time. In this way, you can make your internet site appear more professional and more appealing to the site visitors. Pages that implement SSI get a .shtml extension.
